The FIREBALL GRANT
Richard Allen “Rick Fireball” Roberts, former teacher and coach at Northmont High School, passed away on August 20, 2018. Rick served in the US Marine Corps. Fireball was a founding member of the Miami Valley Baseball Coaches Association and was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 1985. Coach is also a member of the Miami Valley Football Association Assistant Coaches Hall of Fame, the BGSU Football Hall of Fame, the Northmont High School Athletic Hall of Fame, Northmont Football Hall of Fame, and Northmont Baseball Hall of Fame.
With the Fireball Grant, Rick continues to provide a fun learning experience that will last a lifetime. Students at Union Elementary will learn about the various types and parts of plants, how to take care of plants, and entrepreneurship where they will run plant sales to raise money for field trips. Mr. Fister, Mrs. Miller, Mr. Mergler, and Mr. Watkins, science teachers in 3rd and 6th grade, won the grant through the Northmont Education Foundation.
